Officials in Lincolnshire, UK have not repaired speed cameras that vigilantes had destroyed several months ago. In February, a camera in a 30 MPH zone on the A1073 in Cowbit was taken out. In April, activists destroyed a camera on the A16 in Deepings.

The burnt-out camera remains currently stand idle, shrouded by a blue tarp and unable to issue citations. A representative for the Lincolnshire Speed Camera Partnership told the Free Press that it would take time to schedule the replacements which cost £40,000 (US $80,000) each in parts and labor.
